Meet the team > Joni Chase
Joni is KaMCOP's Development Manager (FE) and is responsible for the development and delivery of outreach and progression programmes with further education college partners.
Joni has always had an interest in social equality and educational inclusion, and focused on these in both her undergraduate and postgraduate studies. In 2004, with the introduction of the Aimhigher Programme, Joni began working in roles to widen access to further and higher level study.
Relocating from Staffordshire in 2006, Joni has since managed a number of projects, primarily focused on widening participation and progression, within Further Education Colleges across Kent and Medway. Being based at West Kent College for 8 years allowed Joni to develop a deep understanding of the inner working of FE Colleges, which was further developed with her role as FE Sector Manager for Aimhigher Kent and Medway. For the past 2 years, Joni has worked closely with all the colleges in Kent, supporting the development of widening participation policy and practice within their HE provision.
Please contact Joni if you have any questions about widening participation or HE provision in colleges across Kent and Medway.
